Re: It's Getting Closer **Update**

So, I've clearly been wishy-washy on this topice for that past two years, and I'm just about to just "throw in the towel", so to speak. I can't get the fear out of my head & I'm leaning toward adoption. It is kind of a bummer to admit defeat...

Re: It's Getting Closer

I've started looking for a counselor, but I haven't been able to find one thus far that deals with something like this. I didn't experience a loss with PE...so that isn't what i was looking for...do you think that I should be looking for post traumatic stress and/or anxiety? I'd like to find a good ...

Re: It's Getting Closer

I know that I should really look into counseling for the fear and anxiety that PE brought into my life...I just have zero idea about how to go about doing that. I'm not sure if any of it would be covered by insurance & who I'd go to. Absolutely no one understands what I've been going through but you...

Re: It's Getting Closer

I've heard that, too...some doctors that I've talked with don't agree; others don't dismiss it. Between my first (mild PE) pregnancy and my second (non-PE) pregnancy were three years...then my third (severe PP PE) pregnancy came two years after that...five years between the first and last... I have ...

Re: It's Getting Closer

Thanks.
I had a mild case with my first pregnancy that was easily treated with delivering him only a week shy of 40 weeks...second pregnancy, nothing...third time wasn't a charm. I had "severe" post partum PE & am still (two years later) on BP meds... =0(

It's Getting Closer

It's getting closer to the time where we said that we'd try again for number four. I'm still pretty terrified and nervous about getting PP PE or PE again but worse... I'll never know unless we try, but I don't want to die trying, ya know? It's been two years tomorrow that I was rushed back into the ...

Re: Q/A - Got a ? Need an answer - ask it here!

I had a question that may be premature...but are there any Walks in the works for FL this year? I don't think that I can handle organizing one, but I'd still love to be a part of one...

Re: Uh OH

OK, I tested tonight (seven days early) and got a negative...Is it weird that I'm a little disappointed? :roll:

Re: anxiety at the doctors office

Wow, I don't think that there are any of us PE ladies that couldn't relate to this one... I did & do the same thing, but I only do this at my OBGYN's office now (one small step for me, I guess). I usually take my own BP cuff & measure it in the car before I go in...that sounds crazy, but that way I ...

Uh OH

Ok, we are trying to wait to TTC until I lose the last 30 lbs that the doctor suggested (so that I could have a better chance of avoiding PE again), but we had a slip up the other day around my fertile days. Now I wait & try not to freak out, but I am totally freaking out because I wanted to do ever...
